Peta Murgatroyd Has Strong Opinions
Last summer it was announced that longtime, popular hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews were leaving the show, and the former “America’s Next Top Model” host would come in as a replacement. This was a shock to some fans who had watch the pair for years, and many did not take the news well.
Even after the season ended, there were still some non-fans of the former supermodel.
But not Peta, who said, “I think she’s gonna stay. Yeah, I really do. I think she did give the show new life. I think she revamped the show in a way that it hasn’t been before.”
“I mean we love Tom Bergeron. We love Erin Andrews and we were very, very sad to see them go, but I think she’s here to stay.”

What does Dancing With The Stars Murgatroyd think of that idea? “That would be awesome. As you know, we’ve had dozens of football players come on the show and they do really, really well.”
“I think he’s a controversial guy,” she added, “and I love that and he’s always in the headlines and I think the show would really, really thrive with somebody like that.”
